Of NFL, Canty and Me.

My girlfriends and I woke up for our flight to Vegas last June at about 4 Am. Due to my inability to wake up that early save for instances like Christmas morning when I was 6 or a debilitating case of the flu... I knew I had to do something... otherwise, it ain't happening. To remedy this, my iPhone alarm was renamed "CAITLIN: WAKE THE EFF UP, YOU'RE GOING TO VEGAS". Thus; as it blared and beeped- I would be reminded in my stupor that I needed to get up to go to the airport!
Chris Canty and me both just arrived in Vegas. June 2012 about 9 AM.
 And thankfully, I made my flight - because upon touchdown at good ol' McCarran airport, I stumbled upon someone I've been wanting to meet for a lonnnng time: Chris Canty of the NY Giants. I've been a lifelong fan so it was a treat.

Just kidding. To be honest: I saw 3 people making him sign jerseys, I saw his huge athletic body, I saw his bodyguard and I figured he must be famous. So I took the picture FIRST then figured out who he was after (and my friends still make fun of me for it). But he was hunky and kind (even to me in my dumpy plane gear at 9AM) and so I will definitely root for the Giants a wee bit this year.

Happy NFL Season friends.

Who do you root for???

[Editor's Note: Denver Broncos are MY team since I was a zygote. And I have love for the Bears, Eagles and Vikings too... and now- the Giants! But really, it's Denver all the way.]

I love that you took the picture first and figured it out later. I'd have been too tired to notice it was a famous person! If I'm up at 4am its because I haven't gone to bed yet.

LMAO that is awesome, oh there's a famous guy, time for a picture haha

Erika said...

Hahaha! I love this picture. To be honest, I could be standing right next to a famous athlete, and I would have no idea who he was - I never follow sports. That said, being from New York, I always root for New York teams.

P.S. You look adorbs in your travel gear!! :)

Kate Sparkles said...

Haha it sounds like something I'd do..
I support the Saints.. I love the way American's 'root' for a team.. Not sure if you realize that 'root' us Aussie slang for sex.. so obviously the phrase sounds a little odd to me, no matter how much time I spend in the states or with Americans, it always makes me giggle!

Jocelyn Pascall said...

So you to take that pic! And, you already know well who I am rooting for! GO DENVER BRONCOS!!!

You look sooo pretty in this photo, love your dress <3 That'd be pretty exciting! I probably would only recognize the Canucks since I am a tad Canucks-Crazzzy, every other sports team is a blank in my mind.

I am not a huge football fan so I have no idea who this guy is. Aside from a few bears players in Chicago, Brian Urlacher...other than that...I am in the dark. Regardless...this guy is very good looking.

Ha! Great pic. Glad you made the flight. :)

Tina said...

rinniez said...

Oh my, isn't he tall? Don't know anything about Football (just few players), but of course will root for NY Giants/Jets & alil AZ Cards. Basketball, all day every day, waiting for season to start already.

You look super cute, loving the maxi with leopard hoodie.

femmefrugality said...

I root for the Steelers all the way! Too funny how that happened...just think if you had woken up right on time and left a few minutes earlier, you might have missed the opportunity.

Islandia Lane said...

hahaha love it - great story. yea, I had no clue either but totally agree on the hunky.

Naghmeh said...

holy height difference! haha I guess he really did stand out and I actually really like your outfit from the photo!
stories like this are the best. Football is really not that big in Canada so I don't really have favourite!
